Chris Paul trolls Steph Curry with shimmy

May JohnsonMay 26, 2018

"It was well-deserved. It was a tough shot", Curry said of Paul, who left Houston's 98-94 Game 5 win with a hamstring injury.

Iguodala had also missed Game 4 after suffering a left lateral leg contusion when he banged knees with Rockets guard James Harden in the fourth quarter of Game 3 on Sunday.

By the final minutes, the Rockets had taken a single possession lead and managed to hold on for a crucial 95-92 win that wrestled home court advantage back in their favor.

Kevin Durant paced the Warriors with 29 points while Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 45 points on 16-of-31 shooting. The vaunted backcourt duo, head coach Mike D'Antoni and a bevy of perfectly fitting role players have pushed the Warriors, once seemingly invulnerable, to the brink of elimination.

Paul has been averaging 19.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game in this series, 43.3 percent from the field and 34.5 percent on 3-pointers.

The Warriors should feel great heading into Game 6.

"Last game was the plan [to play]". "If he isn't, it's time for somebody else to step up".

"You'd be a fool not to believe me", Green said when asked about the team's inconsistent play.

It's certainly good to see that Harden and Paul were together after the game, likely keeping each other's minds off basketball and the fact that they're just one win away from the NBA Finals.

On Friday, the Rockets announced that Paul will miss Game 6.

He had himself a night in Game 5, scoring 20 points and tallying seven rebounds, six assists and three steals for the Rockets. "Just with the talent we have on this team and the resiliency and what not, you know, we can get the job done".

When Houston won the game, Paul limped - very slowly - back to Houston's locker room, where he didn't speak to reporters after the game because he was receiving getting treatment. But trying to close out this Warriors team without Paul will be a monumental challenge for the Rockets.
